Steve Finley...on the way back?

Postby Mercer Boy » Mon May 30, 2005 6:40 pm

He's been hitting like crap all year, but still manages to have 7 HR's. The last three games he's been getting a decent amount of hits. The dude is getting up there in age, but do you think he'll come back to "near normal?"

Is he one of those slow start guys? I've had him benched in my one league for god knows how long now...

He's definitely not a slow starter. Remember his numbers at this point last year? They were unbelievable.

All of you can rest easy, Steve will start hitting great now...

I traded him away about 4 days ago, you know, right about when he started to have a decent SLG%

Oh well, he pissed me off on just about a daily basis so good riddens

Mercer, as long as you don't make a sig about him, he'll post good numbers :-b .

Finley may be streaky, but over the course of a season he's one of the most sure bets in the entire league from year-to-year. Always nice to have as a 4th OF because you bench him when he's cold, yet ride his hot streaks. I draft him every year :-D .
